1.) Since my action group all had similar interests, we decided to work together and do something that relates to our interests. We came up with the idea to do several ocean cleanups simply because we wanted to do an action that has an impact on a global scale, and what better way to do that than to do an ocean cleanup. Ocean cleanups are very helpful to our environment. I am planning on executing this action with Itzel and Chantal. This will increase the impact that we make since there are more bodies. We are going to pick a different location to clean up biweekly. The organization we chose to sign up with is The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
2.) Nothing in life comes easily. It is obvious that the harder you work, the better the outcome. With this in mind, I am looking forward to facing many obstacles and. challenging that are going to be thrown my way. When i am faced with challenges, I see it as something positive because it is a great learning opportunity. In my opiniion, learning from your mistakes is one of the most efficient ways to learn. There are many possible complexities that we can face in our action. For instance, the weather will not always be in our favour, which might slow down the cleanup process. Another possible factor could be the way we get to the location. To get to the locations, we depend on someone to drive us there. We might not always find a ride. Some days might be more successful than others, but this will not discourage us. We are a determined group that is willing to make an extra effort to reach our goal.
3.) I believe that ocean cleanups are sustainable. With the topic of climate change repedetely being brought up in conversations because of its severety, ocean cleanups can be a very sustainabe way to make a change in a global scale. Not many people have the priviledge to do something extreme to help out the earth. Which means that they revert to ocean cleanups because it is a very good way help the environment, even if it is not something where you will be able to see emmidiate results. The ocean covers a huge amount of the earth, which means that it is in more need of maintenance. Ocean cleanups help maintain the ocean, and insuring it stays clean and that there are no harms such as plastic going anywhere near it.
4.) This action project does provide opportunities for those in our community with similar interests and a passion to help out. When we signed up to do ocean cleanups with The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, we organised public ocean cleanups, which means that anyone can come help out whenever we go do ocean cleanups. This is an excelent way to make sure we are doing whatever we can to reach our goal, and increase the impact our action will have on a golbal scale. In order to ensure we are making the poistive impact that we intend, we will consistenly do ocean cleanups. As mentioned before, we will go to a different location biweekly. This will effectively increase the impact our action has on the environment, as well as make it more efficient.
We do not have an expert consultant helping us in our project this semester.
